The Video or DVD is now on sale,  and is based on a script produced by Society president and local historian, Andrew Todd,

The film charts the development of Ramsbottom from village to industrial town during the period from 1783 to the coming of the railway in 1846; the geographical reasons for development, with scenes of former industrial activities, and what now remains of their existence, are to be seen, together with the supporting commercial and domestic infrastructure; 

Throughout the film can be seen the ghostly presences of the principal characters of the period, including the Grant brothers, William and Daniel, immortalised by Dickens as the Cheeryble Brothers;
